Baked Alaska ~ Omelette Norvegienne

This is just a sumptuous dessert and one I know you, your family, and friends will fall madly in love with!


  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup (8 oz/250gm) sugar
  • 1 sponge cake (genoese)
  • 3 tbsp kirsch or other liqueur
  • 2 cups (6 oz (500 gr) vanilla ice-cream
  • Icing sugar - just a sprinkle
  • 2 tbsp Grand Marnier to light.


  1. Whisk the egg whites with the sugar until it forms stiff peaks. This can be done using a beater or with a hand whisk but takes much longer.
  2. Place the meringue in the refrigerator to chill.
  3. Cut the cake in half horizontally and sprinkle with the liqueur.
  4. Place half the cake on a serving plate and cover it with the ice-cream. The ice-cream must be frozen solid - you may have to cut it into pieces!
  5. Place the other piece of cake on the top. Press it down completely covering the ice-cream.
  6. Cover the whole area of the cake with the meringue quite roughly. This is the crucial part it MUST be completely covered!
  7. Sprinkle with icing sugar.
  8. Place in center of pre-heated oven 220°C/425°F until golden brown, about 4 - 5 minutes, or you can use a creme brulee torch to brown the meringue.
  9. Keep Baked Alaska in the freezer for 2 - 3 hours until it is time to serve.
  10. To make a big splash, drizzle 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier over the meringue and light with a match! (Be sure to stand back a little.)
